Rada Deputy Ariev: Some Members Of PACE Bribed By Russia

Verkhovna Rada deputy Volodymyr Ariev from the faction of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko, the leader of the Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), says some members of the PACE have been bribed by Russia.

He wrote this on his page in Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Volodymyr Ariev writes that the Migration Committee of the PACE has decided to call the Ukraine - Russia conflict a war, and the Legal Committee of the PACE has also adopted a tough resolution against Russia.

"While the leadership of the PACE is creeping before the Kremlin most of the time, the situation is different at sittings of the committees," he wrote.

However, the leader of the Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe believes it is premature to say that the decisions indicate that the delegation of Russia won't be allowed to return to the PACE.

"An interesting technology has been employed - 'we must have Russians in the PACE to tell unpleasant things to faces.' In reality they are not few in the PACE who are on the corruptive or other hooks of the Russian Federation," he wrote.

The Verkhovna Rada deputy emphasizes that the Ukrainian delegation will do their utmost not to allow return of the Russian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, in April 2014 the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe suspended the right of the Russian delegation to vote following the annexation of the Crimea by Russia.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has more than once extended the suspension for the armed aggression against Ukraine.

Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine's envoy to the Council of Europe, says a number of officials of the PACE are interested in renewal of the right of the Russian delegation to vote.
